Ceiling medallions are a unique type of trim used to accent ceilings and anything that you hang off them. While they shouldn't be used on their own, they make a pretty big difference when used around the base of a ceiling fan or chandelier. When you put a medallion at the base of one of these objects you'll end up with a classier looking piece overall. It helps them blend into the ceiling and makes them look more natural in the space. That is if you pick out the right medallion. Too many people decide on a medallion that simply doesn't match the space that it's put in. It's up to you to avoid making this mistake. Make sure that you take your time when choosing one and get one that matches the look and feel of your room.
